David Altmejd at Museé d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris
October 10, 2014 – February 1, 2015

Eagles dressed in suits, broken mirrors, huge hairy giants, and face-less heads. These were just a few of the strange and wonderful things to ponder at David Altmejd’s exhibition, FLUX, at Museé d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. As you walked through the exhibition it becomes clear that his interests lie in the natural sciences, David Lynch movies and architecture. Below are a few images from the exhibition.

Sculptures of hollow heads with blown out faces, fake hair, and a red apple. The voids in the heads reminds one of the effects of zero gravity according to what is depicted in sci-fi movies.
